Almost 60% of companies in the CEE region have not yet formed a digital transformation (DX) strategy, while the main goal for those that have is to improve automation and efficiency. Main drivers for DX initiatives in CEE companies include the adoption of new technologies used by partners and customers, the emergence of new business models, and — obviously — staying competitive in their market.
Following the huge success of the local editions of IDC CIO Summits across the CEE region, we're sure that you would not want to miss the chance to be part of the IDC CIO Summit 2018, taking place in Opatija on October 17-19.

Below is a reminder of what happened throughout 2017!

Very useful gathering of IT professionals. Apart from inteesting presentations, panel discussions, and roundtables, I had the opportunity to meet number of highly motivated people, and to learn more about some of new vendors influencing the regional IT landscape.

I would like to thank you again for participating at the IDC CIO SEE Event 2017. For me, it was an inspiring event with a lot of interesting information, presentations, and discussions. The ability to get in touch with colleagues of different domains and talk about the challenges and visions of Information Technology was very valuable. Furthermore, I was proud to get the opportunity to present and discuss our challenges in the area of Cloud and Mobility. I am looking forward to participate in 2018 again.

It was a great opportunity to hear about new digitalization trends, but also about key challenges to implement them across emerging markets. By selecting hot topics and focusing on real-life experience, IDC made this event ’place to be’ for senior SEE IT leaders. No less important was excellent networking opportunity, which has a great value for IT society during this turbulent time for IT when all business explores how to embrace digital transformation.

I would like to thank you once again for the invitation and the fabulous organization of IDC Forum. It was a pleasure to be an active participant of the event and you can count on me in the future.
Natali Delic, CTO (Serbia and Slovenia), VIP Mobile/A1 Mobile

It is not an empty phrase when I say that from the many IT events in enterprise and government sector I visit regularly, IDC’s SEE Forum always takes a special place. Not only due to the contemporary content, wonderful venues and immaculate organization, but also because it gathers the top experts from the industry, thus providing the excellent interactive sessions and 1-2-1 meetings, both formal and informal.
Branislav Dobrosavljevic, Data Services Manager, Serbian Business Registers Agency

First of all, I am very grateful for the invitation. The organization was splendid and I congratulate you for it. The topics were chosen well and in accordance with current matters in the industry (mts Banka). It is very important that I had an opportunity to listen about new, innovative, inspirational things, things I could implement in the bank. I also managed to meet new people and establish valuable contacts. It was a great pleasure and an honor to be able to speak for almost an hour to Mr. Pucciarelli about digital transformation in banking.
Dejan Jankovic, Director of IT Center, mts Bank
